Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York sent delegates—eleven in all. North Carolina, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire promised delegates, but none came.

About the author: William Estabrook Chancellor (1867-1963) was an American professor (College of Wooster, Ohio), historian, and writer. Other works include “The United States: A History of Progress,” “Educational Sociology,” and “The Health of the Teacher.”
